Sonoma winery tastings at our Sebastopol vineyard estate do not take place in a traditional wine tasting room. This is our home, and inviting you in is a warm gesture of friendship and intimacy. This family-owned, unpretentious setting is part of what makes our Burgundian Pinot Noir wine tasting experience so unique.
Sonoma Vineyard Winery Tastings

You'll learn about the magic of this winegrowing region, from the morning fog that blankets our vineyard, to the winemaking process that lends such diversity and character to our wine tastings.
We'll also invite you to join our Inner Circle to acquire an allocation of our most coveted vineyard wines to please your tastes.

Wine Tastings - What to Wear
We want your Sonoma County winery wine tasting experience to be a comfortable one. We strongly recommend avoiding perfume.
When choosing an outfit for your wine tasting experience, it’s opt for darker colors or patterns that hide wine spills. Our Sebastopol vineyard is on a gentle slope, so it’s also best to wear comfortable shoes if you plan to tour the vineyard.
Above all, come to the Halleck Vineyard Winery with curiosity and interest in North Coast Sonoma Wineries – and be prepared to enjoy yourself thoroughly.
If you're looking for a place to stay after your wine tasting experience, try our private Wine Lodge.

Sonoma Wine Tasting FAQ
When you arrive for your wine tasting, make sure you are at our black wrought iron gate. The keypad is on the 2nd wood post to the left of the gate. Call the phone number printed above the keypad. We will open the gate for you. The gate stays closed to protect the vineyard from critters.
It's a 90-minute wine tasting experience. You will be served 8 different wines, each of which are paired with a bite-size delectable food pairing. And each Sonoma County wine varietal is presented with an explanation of where the fruit was grown and how it was made.
We are a small Sonoma winery. We have parking for cars, SUVs and vans, but not for limos or buses. If you are arriving in a limo or bus, please have them drop you off at the gate on Burnside Road. Our driveway will not accommodate larger vehicles. Please park buses or limos by our gate on Burnside Rd. leaving enough room for cars to pass and walk down the driveway.

Yes. None of the food and wine pairings have gluten in them so that you can stay on your gluten-free diet without missing out on anything.
No. We serve cheeses with our Sonoma wines so it is not a lactose free wine tasting experience. So, unfortunately, our lactose-intolerant guests will miss out on some of the pairings. For our complete menu, check the previous link.
We discourage guests from bringing young children. Our Russian River Valley Wine Tasting Sonoma County experience lasts 90 minutes and that’s a long time for a young child to sit unattended. We love kids. We have our own. But children and wine are not 100% compatible, and as a courtesy to all guests, we prefer to keep our Sebastopol wine tasting experience to guests 21 and over.
If your dog is friendly and socialized, then definitely. Our Sebastopol winery is entirely fenced and our African Basenji dog – a nonshedding, hypoallergenic dog – enjoys other pups and is an excellent host. All dog visitors are automatic lifetime members of the Halleck Vineyard Sebastopol Winery Dog Club.
Unfortunately, we are not a wheelchair-compliant winery. It is possible to wheel around to the side of our deck, but there are 2 steps you need to get up to access the deck. We do not have a ramp. Also, our bathroom is not wheelchair accessible.
